Book Review Friday - Proof of Heaven #bookreview
Book Review for: Proof of Heaven
Written by: Eben Alexander, MD
Simon and Schuster
A compelling case for life after death
Alexander crafts a dynamic and comprehensive look of the spiritual world with "Proof of Heaven." Diagnosed with E. Coli Meningitis at 54, rare in adults, he's rushed to the hospital. Despite quick treatment, he lapses into a coma. As a neurosurgeon, he knows his brain is inactive, but while he's in a coma, his consciousness has a near death experience in the spiritual plane.
What Alexander learns shatters his Earth-based beliefs. He's met by a young girl with butterfly wings, then he experiences the Creator who assures him he is loved. Alexander learns that the "consciousness" is more than a physical manifestation in the brain. His insights and observations will test a person's own beliefs.
This book is written in a conversational style and most terms were explained so the reader could understand them. One feels like a member of Alexander's family keeping vigil at his bedside. His personal story sheds light on the deeper meaning of life. For those searching for answers about life after death, Alexander's story will astound you. A genuine page turner. I couldn't put the book down.
Question: Have you had a Near Death Experience? Did it have a profound effect on you?
